Cool Luchtime Happening

The weather here has sucked for about a week now. Late this morning the sun came out, so I decided to take a lunchtime stroll around the pond behind the museum. As I approached the pond, about 20 feet away from me a huge redtail hawk swooped out of a tree and nailed a mallard sitting right on the edge of the pond. It's so cool to be exactly in the right place at the right time to be able to witness something like that.

the mallard may think otherwise.
